Whitespectre is a product-centric, technology consultancy for both vc funded start-ups and large companies across the US and Europe. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth- both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring. We’re also a product incubator ourselves, with our own applications and growing b2b SaaS platform.
Proudly remote first since 2013, we’re a close-knit team of 75, working in fast-moving, agile pods to solve interesting technical challenges and drive real business impact.
What's it like to be a Front End / React Engineer at Whitespectre?
- Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes Node.js/Express, ReactJS, Typescript, Webpack, REST/GraphQL, Rails, Postgres, Elastic, CI/CD with Docker, Heroku/AWS, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases.
